The Huawei P40 Pro is a smartphone packed with features and impressive hardware. But what are the device’s standout features?
There’s so much to uncover when it comes to the smartphone’s capabilities. But if we had to choose, here are the five best features of the Huawei P40 Pro…
1. The P40 Pro’s camera
The Huawei P40 Pro’s most notable feature is its camera. The main camera is a quad camera setup including a 50MP wide-angle lens, a 40MP ultra-wide cine lens, a 12MP telephoto lens, and a time-of-flight camera lens.
These lenses make for a powerful setup that can take detailed and vivid photos from minute close-ups to wide, all-encompassing landscapes.
For smartphone photographers who find themselves taking pictures in less-than-ideal settings, the Pro Pro’s camera embodies the low-light mastery consumers have come to expect from Huawei smartphones.
Thanks to features like the 5x optical zoom and 10x hybrid zoom, you don’t have to worry about being the perfect distance from your subject — the camera can still deliver detailed photos from further away.
All these different ingredients come together to create a camera that is as versatile and dynamic as the settings a smartphone photographer would want to capture.
2. Battery life and charging
Consumers have come to expect all-day battery life and high-speed charging with Huawei’s flagship smartphones. And the P40 Pro does not disappoint.
The smartphone comes with a 4200mAh battery, equipped with 40W supercharging support.
Rapid charging is not only limited to wired charging, however, with the P40 Pro also supporting 27W wireless charging.
So when your battery is low, it will take relatively little time to charge it up to the point you need.
Meanwhile, the phone also features CPU power efficiency and AI features that make the best of the battery life you have — stretching it further than expected.
3. P40 Pro design
With its multi-lens setup and large battery, you might expect the Huawei P40 Pro to compromise on a lightweight design.
However, when it comes to the smartphone’s rear camera bump, Huawei has chosen minimalism rather than an overly conspicuous design.
As a result, this complements rather than detracts from the sleek profile of the smartphone.
The in-display fingerprint sensor, low-profile side buttons, and edge-to-edge display further enhance the streamlined and polished design that users expect from premium devices.
4. P40 Pro camera AI and software
The P40 Pro doesn’t only make its camera stand out in terms of hardware. Artificial intelligence and software modes come together to further enhance the smartphone’s camera capabilities.
For example, AI stabilisation makes sure that your night photos don’t come out blurry when you snap pictures using your hands rather than a tripod.
When it comes to selfies and portraits, the AI works to reproduce skin tones accurately in spite of your subject’s background or unwanted lighting interference. You can also edit portrait photos to remove reflections and ensure that all subjects are in focus.
Meanwhile, if a passerby in the background disturbs your shot, the AI can remove them for you.
The camera is also packed with other software modes including monochrome, slow-motion, light painting, dual view, timelapse, and even an AR lens mode.
5. Smooth visuals and crisp display
The Huawei P40 Pro features an OLED 6.58-inch display with a 2640 x 1200 resolution. It also has up to 90Hz refresh rate.
But what does this mean for the user?
What this adds up to is a display that is responsive, smooth, and vivid — allowing you to enjoy all the best the smartphone has to offer without display lag or low resolution holding you back.
